Default Blow away your stuck pizza

Hmmmm, here is a technique I hadn't seen or heard of before for liberating stuck pizzas. Requires the understanding of customers and other onlookers that WFO temps will kill anything.

I never thought of blowing under the pizza to release it!
I'll have to give that a try.

I don't think, however, that I'll be reaching into my WFO to make the pizza round! I'm already missing most of the hair on the back of my hand and even a nice patch just past my wrist!

Good find though Jim.

Yeah, blowing under the pizza really works. I'm surprised it does for him since it looks like he has about three pounds of topping on his skin.

A local diner has installed a gas fired earthstone oven, and is advertising brick oven pizza on their extensive menu. I watched the cook one time, he put the pizza in the oven, and spent some time poking it with a pointed tool. Then after about three minutes he pulled the pizza to the front, grabbed the edge with his finger, and rotated it on the peel before putting it back in for another three or four minutes. I don't think he would grab hold of the edge of a pizza that just came out of my oven. Not more than once.

Two comments: Yup! That's the way I turn my pizzas around. But you have to be fast! I may not be able to do that when I get a few years older

Maybe it would be better to use a canned of compressed air - like Dust-Off?

Ahhh, compressed air. Certainly better from an appearance standpoint.

or shoot a little propane underneath and light it off!!!

I have been needing that technique for quite some time - a little sauce in the wrong place is big trouble for me.

I'm with you on the can of compressed air. Not liking the idea of some germ infested pizzalo blowing on my pizza.

Great tip... I've made so many open-faced calzones that my family and guest's pizzas are cooked on a screen. My pizza is the only one vulnerable to the rath of my peel skills.

I'm in agreement on the compressed air as well. Patrick is right, if I were to see someone blowing on my pizza I would head for the door.
It may be going into a hot oven and all evil doer bacteria is destroyed...I can't get passed the visual. One of those out sight, out of mind/don't ask, don't tell things.
We've all heard the warnings about if you knew what was going on in the kitchen of your favorite restaurants - you would never eat there.....this is one of them.
